Studying for the LSAT / Re: Retake Testmasters or try Blueprint?

I realize it's the last time to test and still make an application deadline, but show me a statistic as to how its actually any harder than any of the other test dates.  Not to mention it's far from ideal to apply late as most schools have rolling admissions.  Maybe you have three or four more words you would like to say about the issue  ;  )

Julie... I don't think any version of the test is any harder than another.  The writers of LSAC do a very good job making all things be very equal.  If December is known as the hardest test then it surely also has the greatest curve to boot.


The reason I want to do one or the other is for the the extra hands on instruction along the way.  I know I will run into problems and have questions that I wont find answers to directly, and having the experience of a knowledgeable teacher will go a long way.  You are right I could probably do this by myself at this point.  However I want to go above and beyond not to mention I will waste time trying to do things that will take far less time if I am enrolled in a class.  If time is money then this is not money wasted it's well spent.  Also I want to continue having online resources which both companies provide (ie.  question explanations, and for Testmasters 85 common flaws and links to answer choices as well as Stimuli are only offered online).  However Blueprint will offer explanations (and I'm told more) of different questions and I hear has a more condensed version of the flaws.  And as I previously mentioned they go over a far more detailed method for dealing with Reading Comp (I could use the help in RC). Also I'm aware that they have very similar methods overall so It wouldn't be too different from what I have already been learning (So much so that they are being sued by Testmasters but that is neither here nor there).  But I take your point and its a very good one.  I am leaning toward a Testmasters round two.

So I have just about completed a Testmasters course in Los Angeles and have decided to postpone my exam until December.  I had something like a life explosion, and was not able to focus as much attention to study through the course as I would have liked.  Though I did attend every class and found it helpful (albeit not much in reading comp).  All the same Im debating if it would be more beneficial to retake the course and fine tune the Testmasters concepts with a teacher I know I like, or if Blue print is worth a go.  I've heard Blueprint focuses more on RC which would be particularly good.  However I don't want to get all messed up conceptually or end up preemptively seeing all the PT's and or questions from the PT's Im planning to save for the 5 weeks prior to the december exam.
Anyone out there have experience with this?
